William Russell: Oh, Mister Jelly

Bill Russell was the single most influential figure in the revival of New Orleans jazz…” Indeed so. Russell rediscovered Bunk Johnson, which ultimately led to the extensive recording of many older New Orleans musicians, which he issued on his famous American Music label. He devoted his life to collecting material on jazz and its origins and “Oh, Mister Jelly” is the culmination of over thirty years at interviews and collection of materials on the life and contributions of Jelly Roll Morton! It contains 720 pages incl. indexes of names, places and of the more than 100 photos also included! The format is A4 (29,7x21 cm), hardbound with laminated dustcover.
